You may take prerequisite courses at Adelphi or at another accredited intuition if desired. If you choose to take the courses at Adelphi, apply to our undergraduate program as a non-degree student. Once the prerequisites are completed, you will then be able to apply to the Accelerated Nursing program. Admission to prerequisite courses as a non-degree student does not guarantee acceptance into the Accelerated Nursing program.
You do not have to have all of these courses completed before the application process. However, all must be completed before you begin the Accelerated B.S. in Nursing program at Adelphi.
Tuition for the Accelerated B.S. in Nursing program is based on four academic semesters and adjusted annually. Contact the College of Nursing and Public Health for tuition information. Accelerated program students registering for a course outside the purview of the accelerated curriculum will be charged the applicable tuition and fees for the course taken.
Once your application is complete, it will be sent to the College of Nursing and Public Health Accelerated B.S. in Nursing program admissions committee for further evaluation. If selected for consideration, you will be contacted regarding an interview date.
The Accelerated B.S. in Nursing program starts the summer of every year.
The Accelerated B.S. in Nursing program is an intense, full-time commitment. Classes are Monday through Friday. View the plan of study. Because of the time required to complete the program successfully, it is expected that you will not work outside of your class studies. Nursing classes will begin at the end of May (summer session) and will finish at the end of the following summer.
All classes will be held at Adelphi’s Garden City campus, located in Nassau County in New York. Some clinical courses will be held at healthcare facilities throughout the surrounding area. Located near Long Island’s parks and beaches, the 75-acre campus is only 45 minutes from New York City, offering the combined advantages of a major metropolitan area and a safe, suburban campus environment.
